Ampelos is the Greek for Latin vitis {"vine"}, and although it is spelt like this they pronounce it ambelos, because when the letter 'p' follows the letter 'm', this 'p' changes into the sound /b/; see also what is written below.


An almost identical text can be found in Ambelos q.v.

For further information see B littera.

Simon's vide infrascripta is ambiguous. He could mean: "see the following entries that deal with lemmata containing the element ampelos, or he may be referring to the entry further down B littera q.v. Commentary section. In said entry he deals with the change from /p/ to /b/ before /m/ as well.
